theemorial will take place in the same venue where jackson hd been reearsing for his planned come concert in london. this video shows jackson dancing and singing two days before his ath. msnbc coune haett is live outside the jacks family home in encino, california. urtney, as we waitor the newsconference, what can y tell us oumemorial plans so far? >> so far wh we kw is that it's going to ke place, as was rumored be, before the family confirmed late, late, late yesterday, it going to take place tuesday morning. the staples center holds to abt 20,000people, depending on how they decideo arrange . however, it's only 11,000 seats areavailable the tickets are going to be free. they're not charngor those 11,000. at wasnother rumor that was flying around in the last couple of days. we're going to hr a little bit morebout that at the press coerence. also, i'm told we might hear about what the plans aor the private service as well. so dinitely a lot of har news
will come out of that press release today. >> courtney,put in perspective the role of eg, the omoters who released this minute and half video ysterday d holding to the videos that we involved in the staples center. ta about their role in all of this. >> you know, i'm reall glad i don'work for aeg right now because they have a tough, tough, tough jo i mean, to nate this in way that is financially sound for them, becaus david, listen. they stand to lo basically, will aundred million dollars, ifot more, truth be told, lots moren theact that michael jackson can't do these 50 shows, obviously. ey also don't want to look like they are exploiting his name in any way. aeg and the staples center is one the same sunder a lot of criticism for that beuse that is where the funeral is. i think it's a good tim toot be too har on them. ey are vendors they have to pay bacwho are awaiting to go
to ndon. there's a huge, huge tangled web here that needs to be unwoven before aeg can come out o this looking okay. >> courtn hazlett, thanks for the port. apprecteit. >> sure thing. also new today jackson's ex-wife debbi rowe sa she nts custody of her two childrenprince michael and paris. rowe told an anor from o nbc los angeles station she wants her kids bac and would even consider filing a restraining order against jason's father joe. but her attorney backtracked on that later saying rowe h not decide finally yet on cuody. jackson's will requests his 79-year-old mother kherine raise all three of his children including th youngest they call "blanket." joining us live from los angeles is victims rits attorney gloria lr. i undetand if debbie rowe is the ological mother s is first in line, isn'the some. >> as long as she has rowling
sher parentalrights. ter a long legal battle, the court of appeals found she had not renquished h parental rights and, therefore,he is e only surviving rent of the two older of michael jackson's children. >> gloria, what do you make of the flip-flopping? first the statement from debbie rowe to the reporters her team is not denying she tended to say at, but then the lawyer s this sortf immedieort of conference ll to try to pull back a little bitand say, no, no, the decisiois not final. what is the gal strategy with at? >> well, it may be that behd the scenes that there are efforts to try to resolve th with katherine jasos representativeor with katherine jackson herself. sohat maybeome sort of agreement and/or settlement could be reached. let's say, for example, the idea that maybe there would be extended visition withdebbie rowe she decides not to
preed to seek custod maybe th'st she's rely seekg and maybe that could be worked out and then there would be an agreement, rather than custody battle. >> there's some peopleut there who e, obviously, cynical and maybe justifiably so but when theyooat debbie rowe's positi they ok at that jackson's will left 40% of his trust to go to his children and left debbie roweutf the will completely. so could that be phaps an effort for her to get in the fami estate i the backdo sa saying the children belong to me so help me financially? >> well, it may behat as part of thesettlement,f there is one, that she is not only seeking perhaps more time, exteed periods of visitation with them, but, in addition, that she would be seeking some sort of finaial settlement a well. we don't know.
here's what i knw. david, if she decides to wage a cuody battle because she has parental rights, she would have the advantage. she would be psumed to be acting in theest interests of the children and that wou mean thatatherine jackson would ve to show tha it would detrimental to t two older children for them t be placed with their mother debbie rowe. >> the way theydo t -- >> a difficult burden. the way they do that is poting back to the previous hearings wre debbie roweuite clearly said she didn't want to have anything do with custody? >> that's true. in addion, debbierowe would comeack anday that was then and thiss no that was wenhey had a part. now, all bets are off esseially. michael jackson is gone. so here i am, i'm rey to take the parenting responsibility beuse he is no longer here to assume it. >> gloriared, victims rightss
